Healthy Banofee Pie

School holiday treat time...But with live super foods. My favourite super food...
                                            RAW VEGAN CACAO POWDER

I love making my girls yummy healthy raw vegan desserts and treats. It satisfies my heart and soul knowing I can give them something yummy special but also healthy that gives their body nutrients and energy rather than robbing it.
Not only will your kids love this the whole family can enjoy a dessert together.

In my new revamped Raw Banofee Pie I use the super food Cacao Power.. notice CACAO not cocoa powder. There is a big difference. CACAO is a super food and has more antioxidants flavonoids than blueberries, red wine, green tea
  • Promote cardiovascular health - Help dilate bloods vessels, reduce blood clotting, improve circulation, help regulate heartbeat and blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol, and reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks.
  • Protect from environmental and metabolic toxins - Help repair and resist damage caused by free radicals, and may reduce risk of certain cancers.
There are many more benefits of Cacao powder. Instead of using the traditional processed caramel in this recipe I have used my favourite chocolate recipe instead.
